For the first time in my life, I discovered a truthful and genuine smile in the poor areas of Nepal and India. From a distance you may only see men, women, and children who live in squatter areas or even on the streetsides, but when you get closer, you see a special kind of joy in the occasional smiles of these people. These smiles may not last forever, but when they appear, they’re as genuine as they can be. I call this the magic of Nepal and India.

It takes months, maybe years to understand and feel the essence of humanity here. Perhaps this the difference between a traveller and a tourist. Most tourists only have a superficial understanding of a place and its people, but travellers experience a part of their lives.
